Handwara, 10 Feb: The roads leading from several areas of tehsil ZachaldaraHandwara to bungus valley are in dilapidated conditions despite being macadamized recently.
Local resident Mohammed Iqbal told fast Kashmir that passengers were facing huge problems due to the bad condition of roads. The drivers deny to ply on yawlar bala to bungus valley road as they say their vehicles get damaged due to bad condition of the road.
The residents of zachildara said the road was macadamized just months before but it is full with potholes. “The travel on the road is time consuming and daily passengers complain of back pain due to dilapidated condition of the road,” they said.
Another resident from zachil Dara said the condition of the yawlar bala to bungus Valley road was good before the PMGSY department started the repair of it some two years back. “They did 20% of the work on the road and then abandoned it. The road got narrow at various places as they left the gravel on the roadside,” he said.
Similar, are the complaints of residents of yawlar who said most important road from yawlar to zachildara is in shambles. “The work on the road was started 11 years ago but it is still incomplete. We face huge problems due to blockade of the road,” they said and added the work on few roads in the area was started last year, but unfortunately the contractors left the work midway after digging.
